The purpose of the class is to teach adult big game hunters how to refine and apply their basic marksmanship skills to become better hunters. Topics include proper zeroing and marksmanship techniques, range estimation, shot placement and equipment. This class will include a shooting session at the Rio Grande Sportsman’s Range. Hunters of all skill levels are welcome to attend.
Participants must bring their own centerfire rifle (preferably the rifle used to hunt big game) and ammunition with a minimum of 30 to 40 rounds. This class will be limited to 20 participants and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
There will be three sessions: morning classroom on the 26th for all participants, a range session during the afternoon of the 26th for half of the class, and a range session on the morning of the 27th for the remaining participants.
